The centrifugal stress is weight per foot x z/2 -r £-, and the
fourth and sixth columns assume that /n = '2 Tn which gives Tn :
Vn : : 5 : i.    From the tension formula,

i|7/ is the usual diameter for main rope.

Fig. 545 shews a spinning-mill driven by cotton ropes, the
power being-given to five floors by separate sets of ropes, a good
arrangement in case of breakdown. The slack side being upper-
most gives a large arc of contact. Fig. 546 shews a travelling
crane. The rope is endless, passing round the pullies D, H, A, G,
F, and E in succession, and kept taut by the weight at H. Worm
gear is used in taking off the power, at E for travelling, at B for
lifting and lowering, and at c for cross-traversing; and either rope
is put in gear by the press pullies a, fr, actuated by hand levers P, Q
E is reversed by friction gear worked from handle L.```
